Clarification is demanded from CMC on its involvement in breaking into Al-Dhabhawi's house


Activist and media figure Ali Al-Dhabhawi said that a military unit and Communications and Media Commission broke into his house in Najaf Governorate, In light of what he spoke about on his "Studio Nine" program on the Al-Baghdadiya TV channel.


JFO was handed a video of the exact moment Al-Dhabhawi's house in Najaf was broken into based on what the surveillance cameras showed.


According to Al-Dhabhawi, "a security force joined by CMC members broke into his home, only because he is one of the individuals who have the word and demand the right and dignity of the Iraqi people."


He said, "These raids and housebreaking are utterly unacceptable," adding that "Al-Baghdadiah is not broadcast from Baghdad, but the episodes are filmed in front of a display screen like any YouTube channel, and we send them overseas to broadcast. My house was attacked today, but we will shoot in another house and other regions tomorrow."


The relevant authorities, particularly the Communications and Media Commission, did not publish any statement explaining what happened or why Al-Dhabhawi's house was broken into.


JFO demands that CMC explain the grounds for the attack and reply to reports that its workers were involved in the housebreaking.
